Kirkpatrick For Bivens in Arizona

November 7, 2011

As party leaders wait to see whether former Surgeon General Richard Carmona will make a Democratic Senate bid in Arizona, former state Democratic Party Chairman Don Bivens is working to coalesce support from the state's Democratic establishment.

Today he announced that he's secured the backing of former Arizona Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick.

"I've known Don for years and I know he's the right candidate for the U.S. Senate because he's spent his career working with successful entrepreneurs and small businesses, helping people come together to solve problems," Kirkpatrick writes in an email obtained by Hotline On Call that will be released Monday afternoon.

Kirkpatrick is running for her old seat in Arizona's 1st District, and could face a rematch against Republican Rep. Paul Gosar, if he decides to run there in 2012.

Some Democrats including President Obama have been working to recruit Carmona, but he has yet to commit one way or the other. Kirkpatrick's not the first former member of the state's congressional delegation to back Bivens: He has also been endorsed by former Rep. Harry Mitchell.
